Editorial Reviews

First released in the United States in 1999 but with insufficient mastering quality, Good Morning Story was the first time Czukay used an ordinary sampler for his compositions. Joined by vocalist U-She, Czukay's compositions and sounds became more sharp and succinct, resulting in an avant-garde album that stands up to many of today's releases.

As a co-founder of German experimental outfit Can, Czukay helped pave the way for avant-garde and electronic music. Czukay's innovations, as heard on Good Morning Story, are the foundation for the still blossoming electronic scene. This definitive Revisited reissue contains the original recording digitally remastered from the original tapes, including bonus track, new liner notes by Holger and is housed in deluxe digipak format with the original artwork.

I probably like this disc as much as I do the former Can's bassist 'Moving Pictures' effort that I've covered before.In all honesty,'Good Morning Story' could've easily been a Can album,in a sense,that is.It has three other former Can members sampled on the CD as it stands.So,at least guitarist Michael Karoli,drummer Jaki Liebezeit and keyboardist Irman Schmidt are present by heart.All six tracks are quite innovating as well as diverse.Czukay has a guest vocalist on "Invisible Man" and "Dancing In Wild Circles" by a female who goes by the name of U-She...believe she's ALSO on the previously mentioned 'Moving Pictures' CD.The title track really impressed me as I also sat up and took notice of the well written "World Of The Universe".The final tune is a 22-minute epic "Mirage" that is best described as mutated drone making an all out attempt to take on a life form of it's own.Might also mention that it has a Middle Eastern vibe intact.It's been noted that Czukay stays up all night,every night,turning knobs,assembling tape splices as well as experimenting with sound.After hearing this piece of work,you'll see that his work has paid off.

Holger Czukay's newest effort, "Good Morning Story" is a brilliant continuation of the tangents he began exploring on the previous "Moving Pictures". After some inspired weirdness with 'The Invisible Man', Czukay launches into a 3-song 'rearrangement' of Can's 'Vitamin C' (from their "Ege Bamyasi"), beginning with a strange 'radio-play-esque' narrative on the first, and shifting into even further deconstructions of the 'Vitamin C' riff. Then after the brilliant 'Atlantis', we move into the long ambient workout of 'Mirage', which seems to hearken back to the droning drift-spaces found on Holger's early "Canaxis" effort. Musically, brilliant...but docked a star solely for just being too danged short (it runs about 44 minutes). It'd be nice to have the rest of that disc filled out with more Czukay-musik next time out.

One of the finest Can related products I've heard in years. Certainly Holger's best new album since, what? Der Osten ist Rot? On the Way to the Peak of Normal? No, nothing will ever be that good but this space jitter-funk interplanentary psychedelic worldwide groove thang recalls many of the finer momentos on both of the aforementioned absolutely essential classic recordings. Six tracks, all excellent with guest shots by Can kin; Irmin Schmidt, Jaki Liebeziet, Michael Karoli and honorary band members Jah Wobble and U-She, this has good reason to sound as good and Can-like as it does.

this is everything but a smart arse product. 6 stars are given because of the six tracks on the cd, each representing a whole cd on its own if you like. Starting with the INVISIBLE MAN: obviously inspired by the old tv serie of the invisible man featuring Abbot and Cosstello, latter one boxing against an invisible phantom. The music doesn't sound like a boxing soundtrack at all, it is seldom heard that music can have such a strong effect on one's mood using only a few amount of elements - and without losing Czukay's unique sense of humour. That piece alone is more worth than a thousand 74 minutes filled up cds with hey. To be continued by the title track GOOD MORNING STORY, a six o'clock in the morning rap which lets you come back from shopping and meeting a nun accompanied by some sinister sounding church...or were they wedding bells?...well, don't take this all too litterally. What doesn't make sense wordwise it does so when it comes to music. Nothing chaotic at all, a charming witty man is telling you a story which beats any early morning breakfeast tv program by far. DANCING IN WIDE CIRCLES leads you straight to Africa before the second world war and, believe it or not, straight back into our virtual world again which lets it appear so real for us. Hell of a Rhythm guaranteed! Are you ready for lift off? And further we go into the WORLDS OF THE UNIVERSE. This sounds like a Can rehearsel from 30 years ago appearing in a perfect reanimation like having a dead filmstar back again in virtual reality. Watch out if you find a competative guitar to this one here. ATLANTIS is track No.5 and the title lets you immediately become one of the inhabitants of this place. Is this electronic? Really?Read more ›

Holger Czukay is an artist. There are many composers who are close, but Holger is the definition of artist. This is a FUN cd. Invisible Man reminds one of Ken Nordine...the title cut is like a party set to music...and the 22 minute Mirage is a great ambient piece. Buy this CD and either drive around, or crawl onto the couch, or dance, or drink milk, or dig a small hole, or drive a locomotive, or hold your arms out to either side and roll your head around....but listen to this.
